How much dried basil = 1/2 cup of Fresh [Solved]

Soooooo.if you are stuck using the dried stuff, youll want to use 3 teaspoons or so per tablespoon, eight tablespoons in a half cup. So were talking 24 teaspoons. But, as always, add a little bit at a time, mix thoroughly and *taste* before adding each additional bit of seasoning. Depending on the quality of the basil in the jar and its age, you may need more or less than the half cup.

so 1/2 cup fresh would be about 1/6 cup dried
however fresh and dried basil have a fairly different flavor/texture.

I am a former chef from Canada, and have used both many times, the thing about dried basil is it is 5X stronger than fresh, any dried herb is, I would not use any more than 2 teaspoons, if you find at the end of your cooking it is a bit bland add more, but it cannot be removed once it is in like salt. If you make a gallon of sauce it is better to do it 2 stages, like they do for competition chili it is added in 2 stages first for the flavour and again for the reinforcement of the spice, you never do the final seasoning of any dish in the begining. And with fresh it should not be added until the end either it loses all its flavour and fresh colour cooked for hours in a sauce, when I worked at the hotels that had either southern or northern Italian restaurants, in the dishes we never dumped it in until the end, like parsley it has to be fresh and vibrant.
